that the service industry grew less than forecast. [ baby crying ] that's america's most important industry, for heaven's sake. we got data from the employment service showing jobs still aren't coming back. no doubt a prelude to the all-important, hey, i be the cliche king, employment report. it could truly stink up the joint. the fed in its cryptic minutes -- >> they know nothing! >> said the economy in 2010 will be subdued. a total bummer from uncle ben. i want to witch to minute rice. google smartphone. doesn't seem so smart after all. dummkopf phone. like a rotten granny smith. these are the two important stocks out there. and could sink a bull battleship when they go negative. looked like we would get mauled this morning. i sensed it. the bear was back. the market -- instead, i thought i see a slaughterhouse coming. if not slaughterhouse, maybe "slaughterhouse five." not this time. we're way overbought meaning there's been way too much buying, not enough selling, driving stocks up too far too fast. i consider it a greed indicator. i monitored this one like a hawk. and the markets overb

here, it's not in my backyard type thing, it's i don't want these terrorists here anywhere in america and neither do the majority of the american people and to disdwight this or to say it's a jobs program is ridiculous. >> joe, what do you say to people who say, gitmo, as long as it exists, it's making the lives to become terrorists even longer. ice a bad poster for what america stands for. what's your answer to that? >> my answer to that is that where better than gitmo to put these terrorists? and to bring them to the united states is ridiculous. gitmo, the people there are trained to handle these situations. i talk to a gold star mother who visited gitmo. that plays is a professional, state of the art facility, and they are trained to deal with these terrorists, and that's where they belong. to bring them out to thompson, illinois, or to nips in america and have us learn how to do it, is ridiculous and it's -- go ahead. >> i was just going to say, are you going to go to the hearing today? can the average constituent in the state of illinois make any difference today by showing up at

works in haiti, but if we do nothing, in 10 years one of every $5 in the united states of america will be spent on health care. and in 30 years one of every $3 will be spent on health care in the united states of america. that is unsustainable. that is an unsustainable road for us to go down and people will then look 10 years from now and 20 years from now and 30 years from now and they'll ask, who was representing western pennsylvania when they had a chance to tackle health care reform? who was representing connecticut? who was representing northeast ohio? when the bell rang to step up and make these changes. i yield to my friend from western p.a. >> i thank the gentleman and i thank him for his kind words as well. he hit the nail right on the head, madam speaker. that we, i think it's appropriate today to take a look at what was happening one year ago today. a year ago today the budget deficit was forecast by the congressional budget office for the fiscal year ending september 30, 2009, to be $1.8 trillion. the jobs that were lost in the month of january were more than 700,000 j
mastermind in lower manhattan. plus, osama bin laden is criticizing america on climate change. lizz winstead will take a stab at that. >>> i think the big story tonight, the president going over to the retreat. the republicans made a mistake by inviting him to this retreat and letting the cameras actually take live this question and answer question. we're getting the truth now, folks. for an hour and a half, with no teleprompter, i might add, the president answered questions from members of the republican caucus on question after question, the president dismantled their talking points, exposed problems with their policies and pointed out their own hypocrisy, like when they've taken credit for the stimulus package that they voted against, the projects that they voted against. the president just appeared very reasonable, very knowledgeable, and focused on solutions. but the president let the republicans know, he's not going to be their patsy. he called them out for this social rhetoric on health care. >> we've got to close the gap a little bit between the rhetoric and the reality. if you were
the economy. he brought of the fear of the soviet empire and the cold war. america became focused on a different set of problems in the economy. this will turn the public's attention to other issues. the he will talk about running government a more efficiently. that is the same thing that president clinton did with the reinventing america. this president came in asking vice president biden to have a task force. we will go back to that. we will have the middle class task force. we need to see that they are dealing with the problems of the middle class. what you will see is that the focus will be on the environment. this is an administration focusing on ways to move our dependence on foreign oil. we are talking about solar projects, a wind projects. we are looking to use federal dollars. we will talk about how this is creating real jobs. they will be talking about education. the education money will not be subject to the non entitlement money. they have to lift people's spirits and say that this is a ministration is going forward with a very positive initiatives in spite of the setb
, they want an end to abortion in america. i'm not going to say whether they're right or wrong but i'll point out, when the republicans were in charge, the senate, the house, the white house, the supreme court, once again, they did nothing to help pat robertson's followers accomplish what they wanted. tonight i ask those people, the christian right what about your own pact with the devil? how has that worked out with you -- out for you? i yield back the rest of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields his time. the gentleman from nebraska. mr. fortenberry. the gentleman from california, mr. dreier. the gentleman from louisiana, mr. cao. five minutes. mr. cao: yes. the speaker pro tempore: without objection. mr. cao: thank you very much. mr. speaker, the new orleans saints are going to the super bowl for the first time in franchise history. as their representative to congress, i want to congratulate them in an official manner by acknowledging words of encouragement from constituents on the house floor. sunday's historic win was an inspiration to the rest of new orleans who contin
president. there are people that have added a great deal to america's history that have had idiosyncracies. they have not been of a damaging type. maybe from time to time, unpleasant or irascible. >> you're talking about hyman rickover and john mccain? >> john mccain is a friend of mine. i cannot say about him. i met rickover one time. i think it would fit with him, yes. >> the perceive any kind of role for congress to play? do you think it would be too late by the defense authorization bill to deal with it? do you have any plans to write any legislation on that? >> we will have our hearing wednesday and i hope you come at 10:00 a.m. i am sure all the members of the committee will probe this issue. there may be our requirement at the end of the day to have legislation. we can actually do it by a stand-alone bill. if that is the case, we can include in the defense authorization bill -- which will come out in may or later in the spring -- i do not think we should rush to judgment, because, honestly, i think it is not just the third is -- jurisdiction of those in power in the military, or sta

roz roosevelt massive govement program. i think the people of america want us to work together to step by step work to fix the problems in the world. >> the voters in massachusetts did reject the democratic approach. they have not embraced what the republicans are talking about. theyan't really figure it out much. one liberal wag said obama campaigned on hope. scott brown campaigned on nope. a lot of people see the republican party as the party of "no" right now. >> on health care reform, if you look at the record, we have been pushing health care reform for years. the rejection of the democrat agenda in massachusetts was not necessarily acceptance of republicans. we have to re-earn the trust of the american people. it's incumbent on us to show the american people how we can improve health care and focus on the priority of jobs. the president's stimulus has been a massive failure. when the democrats came into power three years ago, unemployment was half what it is today. we've seen in the past from john kennedy to the present that broad-based tax cuts for small wizs as wel as individua

america need to know about scott brown? >> trust him. >> reporter: what does america need to know about him? >> i think scott acknowledges he's got a learning curve going to washington learning the rules of the senate and the ways. scott is a tenacious campaigner, tireless worker. so i think he's going to roll up his sleeves i think the nation will see him get very involved. i think they are going to be interested to know he's the routine guy, puts out his crash, gets his mail. really always wanted to be someone -- was what he represents. >> reporter: we are at the gas station where scott gets his pick-up truck worked on. joe is probably the last guy to work on the trouble what is the truck like? >> he keeps it up, keeps service, runs great. 200,000 miles on it now i think. >> reporter: rob has lived next door to scott brown for 20 years. you are here at the end of the cul-de-sac. now senator elect scott brown in the house behind me. what is it like? >> he mows his lawn, takes out the trash. he doesn't have a fancy car that's his truck that is his truck. >> reporter: he does drive a tru
agree or there is going to be a firestorm in america. >> sean: [ talking over each other ] >> it is one of those things where i don't think there's any -- many options. i can't imagine in a tough election year for my party to be seen as trying to jam something -- it would be one thing if health care were seen as favorable in massachusetts overwhelmingly popular, it is not. i think another case is the republicans should go to court the next day and -- i can't see politically how it is possible. >> can you imagine nancy pelosi giving up on health care? i want to see the press conference she holds where she admits defeat. >> sean, americans -- my head is about to explode. americans are so angry. they are so sick and tired of being treated like children. pelosi and reid tell them sit down, shut up, don't say anything, get out of the way we are going to pass this whether you like it or not. americans have had it. they don't want to deal with it. that's why you are seeing this in massachusetts that's why you are seeing independents turn the other way. the tide is turning and americans are gon

in the working issues that are facing america to turn this economy around. and i think, keith, that's what the democrats are looking for right now. they're looking for a reenergized effort, because we've got to continue this force for change. >> some process questions here. you're not only senator dorgan's friend, but he discussed this vaguely with you and asked you how old you were and all these other little details. did you see this coming? >> i did not. i did not see it. because i've been down this road before. years ago, they asked me to consider running for governor. i didn't do that, obviously. this one comes at a position where, you know, would i consider it? i'm not considering it. right now, we don't even know who the competitor would be. i mean, we have an idea who it would be, but there's been no official announcement by either party. like i said, i'm not considering it. i'm flattered by it, but this is going to be a huge race. a big loss for the democrats to lose byron dorgan. >> absolutely. this is less true with dodd and more so with dorgan. that could easily be a republican
